Cool unique spot where the mineral deposits on the rocks allow you to climb the waterfall. Long awkward stairway down, a bit of fun work to get up.

We booked a tour here and Doi Suthep with ChiangmaiTrekking. So great! This is an amazing place to visit and we spent a couple of hours climbing up and down the waterfall. Super fun! Ask for Tom to be your guide/driver. He was fantastic!

This was soo great! We were so glad we decided to do this because we weren't 100% sure about how the waterfall would be, but it was totally worth it. Beautiful waterfall and easy to climb up (coming from someone who is very unfit haha)!...More

You get to walk through and play in the falls. It is actually sticky. I like rocks and this rock was neat. Each section had different paths so laps were not redundant. There was rope if you wanted extra safety. Go barefoot! There are lockers...More

I was unsure whether to include this in my visit but am so glad i did. Locals call it the Sticky Waterfalls. It has a white smooth appearance from the limestone. You can park very close and leave your belingings in a locker. You only...More

What a fantastic experience for free enjoying nature with the assistance of a rope to pull yourself up the rocks. There are small flat pools which you can rest in along the journey up. It's an activity for all ages but you need to be...More

I spent a couple of hours there which was plenty for me. You can stay longer as it’s a park with hangout and picnic.
